Flag discrepancy on global counters - autopratoller flag[edit]

Hi. In 2013 I was made autopatrolled, but I have realized that on this edit counter this flag does not appear, although it does here.

Do you have any idea why this occurs?

I have understood that the flag is deprecated but in Wikidata:Autopatrolled users it is still described as a flag like all the others, although it does not appear on this Wikidata:Requests for permissions page or the Template:User groups

I think that he "history" of this flag on data should be better specified somewhere.--Alexmar983 (talk) 12:20, 19 February 2015 (UTC)

My understanding is that removing a user group from the configuration makes it disappear from the database. Actually, you're not a member of the "autopatrolled" group anymore (even if you haven't been explicitly removed from it), and nobody else is:
MariaDB [wikidatawiki_p]> SELECT DISTINCT(ug_group) FROM user_groups ORDER BY ug_group;
| ug_group         |
| bot              |
| bureaucrat       |
| confirmed        |
| ipblock-exempt   |
| oversight        |
| propertycreator  |
| rollbacker       |
| sysop            |
| translationadmin |
| wikidata-staff   |

While sulinfo shows information from the database (or from the API, I don't know), DEWKIN tries to recreate the entire history of your group membership based on log entries, which may not reflect the actual status. --Ricordisamoa 02:40, 21 March 2015 (UTC)
What Ricordisamoa says there is correct, and your (and all others) "autopatrolled" group membership was deleted by WMF sysadmins upon bugzilla request, directly from the database. Vogone (talk) 16:06, 21 March 2015 (UTC)

page is broken[edit]

The table (for bot permission) is not being regenerated properly. When you edit source, you can see things like: {{‎Wikidata:Requests for permissions/Bot/ProteinBoxBot 2}} That are not showing up in the table.  – The preceding unsigned comment was added by I9606 (talk • contribs) at 21:25, 22 July 2015‎ (UTC).


{{int:Abusefilter-history-comments}} is currently used to title the "Comments" section of each request for sysop permission. I think that's the wrong title - {{int:Abusefilter-history-comments}} means "comments" as in "program comments" in the sense of "instructions". I think what you want is "comments" in the sense of "add discussion here". Can we change the template back to "Comments" or "Discussion" without automatic translation until we can find a better int: message? Deryck Chan (talk) 14:37, 12 September 2018 (UTC)

I agree with that.--Ymblanter (talk) 19:42, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
